Review quote

I go back to ["Jane Eyre"] so often and it was one of the first books that made me think, 'This is me, in some deep way.' (Suzanne Vega) "At the end we are steeped through and through with the genius, the vehemence, the indignation of Charlotte Bronte."
--Virginia Woolf "From the Trade Paperback edition.
